Print a selection of reports dependent on user input


I have several reports set up on my DB each with its own layout and its own print script.

What I'm wondering about doing is offering users the ability to be able to print several reports at once, rather than enter a report, press print, enter another report, press print etc which is labourious.

I have built a table with records representing each report which I display on a parent layout using a portal.  I have a script running on the portal row which runs a given report dependent on the report ID.

What I'd like to do is take this further, so the quasi logic would be:

User selects reports with ID's 1, 3 and 5

Filemaker goes to report ID1, prints

Filemaker goes to reportID3, prints

Filemaker goes to reportID5, prints, returns to original layout.

I'm not 100% certain how to capture the required ID's,

Thanks for any help.
